Vaccines save lives. Measles vaccines alone are estimated to have prevented over 21 million deaths between 2000 and 2017. Vaccines will help protect children against diseases that can cause serious harm or death, especially in people with developing immune systems like infants. Each state has legislative requirements for vaccination for children and adolescents entering public schools. State legislation also governs exemptions for medical, religious, or philosophical grounds.
